StyleInspiration - The Teddy Bear Coat

Without a doubt the teddy bear coat is having its moment, see on the likes of Gigi Hadid to Julianne Moore, the plush jackets bring warmth and texture to any outfit. This was further ratified when Vogue profiled the look and spilled the beans on where to get Gigi's jacket. While Gigi's purse friendly Express jacket has long sold out on line - there is a curly jacket for you regardless of budget.


I personally became obsessed with this look and I am happy to share my findings!

QotD - CLEO WADE

Cleo Wade via Instagram
I gravitate strongly towards words of wisdom passed down by our elders or historical figures. In comes Cleo Wade, far from old but perhaps on her way to becoming historical, whom I discovered on Instagram after constantly seeing her notes pop up as liked by people I follow. After going through her feed I needed to know more. Her namesake website describes her as a "poet, artist, and speaker working across mediums, creating empowering messages (she even created a billboard for New Orleans to mark the ten year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina) to provoke emotional responses from viewers, blending simplicity with positivity, femininity and arresting honesty" and I concur. So while like everyone else I take each new year to check in, I am doing so celebrating being weird and setting the intention to be my own hero.
